Required from September 2021
Director of Learning: SEND (SENCO) - Suitable for an experienced SEND practitioner
Oriel High School is an innovative and successful 11-18 fully inclusive school. Oriel is heavily oversubscribed in each year with over 1400 students and was judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2019; it has excellent facilities and is a dynamic learning community.
Students are well cared for via our vertical Learning Community structure, dedicated support staff (HLTAs and Learning Associates) and our whole school ethos of inclusivity. Support for students is primarily given through a range of approaches including support in lessons and intervention individually or in small groups. Oriel has a highly effective transition process built on excellent relationships with its primary feeder schools.
Students joining in year 7 feel ready to take on the challenge of secondary school due to the range of activities and communication in advance of their September start.
Oriel has an SSC (Specialist Support Centre) overseen by it’s own Director of Learning. Students who are part of the SSC provision participate in our broad and balanced curriculum throughout. This reflects our inclusivity and commitment to nurturing the whole child.

- Has experience of supporting students with SEND.
- Has experience of teaching across Key Stage 3 and 4
